In the game, “Mass Effect” there is a compelling concept of an advanced Citadel which houses technology both ancient and powerful…
The species which exist on the Citadel work for the betterment of the Galaxy, although the council members and their affiliates don’t always agree on the best course of action in which to ensure this betterment.
In the Mass Effect, “Codex” a player can learn about the rich history of the Citadel and its astounding technology. Both the architecture and the conceptual systems which support the Citadel make sense and are rooted in accepted near-future space technology modes of thinking. Yet there is one lingering issue which makes the Citadel an incomplete vision of the future.
The Citadel is supposed to house millions of life-forms which carry out their lives. Also, the Citadel is the home for a race of beings called, “The Keepers” which maintain the plethora of Citadel systems. These Keepers work tirelessly to keep the space station up and running…
But there isn’t a single Starbucks on the ENTIRE SPACE STATION!
Do you expect me to believe you can maintain this many interconnected systems without having an occasional latte? Imean, the council is probably so lazy not to investigate Saren because they’re all droopy cuz they ain’t got their iced coffee.
Saren was like, “I didn’t drop that one foo.”
And then my character, Solaria Shepard said, “Yeah right bro.”
Then the council was like, “What’evz, I can barely stay awake right now. Is that hologram girl goona start playing netflix…nevermind too tired..zzz.”
But yeah, that’s when Solaria (she’s actually a descendant of Helixia from my Skyrim RPG fan universe…or perhaps she is an ancestor from an adjacent timeline? ) decided to talk to this homeboy with eyeballs and help him out with his scan project for the Keepers. He’s trying to find out where they come from and if they’re manufactured or if they are living inside the station itself. He is curious about the world he lives in and Solaria was into finding out more as well.
If you do that side quest, you get 30 credits and 10XP every-time you successfully scan a Keeper. This money comes in handy early in the game because you can use it to purchase 100 credit licensees from vendors. I have a feeling these licensees are going to come in handy when I give them to the requisitions officer. Hopefully he can find me some good gear so we can get to the bottom of this Saren mystery.
